At some point it dawned on me that the awful show I'd seen at Soldier Field that summer was the last Grateful Dead show EVER; that I had somehow be fortunate enough to see the FINAL Grateful Dead show. I took some solace in that simple fact and went on with my vacation. For years after that I hardly ever listened to the Dead. It just felt like something that I needed to leave behind me.
